In this video, John Paul goes over the entries and market expectations with the NinjaTrader audience for trading this unique Super Year method in 2015.
Remember the NinjaTrader webinar we did a couple weeks ago? Here’s the recording. It’s another look at the 2015 Super Year. Why is 2015 a Super Year? Because the last digit of the year is a five. John Paul believes the chart itself can tell you exactly what you need to know. The market likes to test where it’s previously been. With the Super Year strategy, highs are tested or exceeded within 55 days on average. If you’re trading during a Super Year or the January Effect has indicated the year should be closing higher than it opened, the bias is long. Watch the video to piece it all together.
You may recall a live webinar conducted by John Paul on January 8, 2015 and another webinar with NinjaTrader on January, 9, 2015. In these webinars, John Paul taught how to look for specific setups as per the 2015 Super Year strategy.
It turns out that today, price surpassed the strategy’s 50% point, thus confirming a valid entry. John Paul entered long on this move up. From the screenshot, you can see this is a large move with a large trade: +21.5 points. With 10 contracts in the trade, the profit is currently above $10k. The expectation is for the E-mini S&P 500 to reach the prior highs from December 26, 2014. If you’re Long on this trade, trail a stop to protect yourself.
We recommend watching the video again so you can be on the lookout for future entries…

Last week, John Paul conducted a live webinar showing traders that 2015 is a “Super Year.” Historically, years ending with a “5” (e.g. 2015, 2005, 1995, 1985, etc.) all the way back to the opening of the financial markets have exhibited consistent behavior. What is it? All of these Super Years ended at a greater price than the price at which they opened. That’s right – they trended bullishly. How can you take advantage of this? In this video, John Paul shows you how to spot breakout moments and position yourself for success. And of course, it’s all based on price action.
When following along, you will be using a clean chart and just the ATR (Average True Range) with a Period value of 4. This period value of 4 means that the green line on the bottom of the chart will be based on the last four bars. The last four bars can be minutes, days, weeks, or years depending on your chart time frame.
With this Super Year method, you will be looking for long trades using two methods. In the first method, you’ll spot the highs and enter above the most recent highs, about two points above. Watch the video for more details and learn the second method!

Today is the day to roll over your equity index futures. If you trade the E-mini, you can roll over your contract to the next contract period, March 2015 (ES 03-15 in NinjaTrader). It is customary to roll over the futures contract eight days before the contract expires. This is known as the roll date, which happens to be today, December 11, 2014. The next roll date will be March 12, 2015.

The way we at Day Trade to Win roll over futures contracts is as follows. NinjaTrader usually “knows” the contract contract to use for any given market at any given time. When you know it’s time to roll over (or even if you want to check), do the following:
1. Go to NinjaTrader’s Control Center > Tools > Instrument Manager.
2. In the name box (top center of the Instrument Manager), type in the abbreviation for the market you want to roll over, e.g. ES. Click Search.
3. In the result box, click the correct market and the row will highlight. Notice below how NinjaTrader knows to set the Expiry date to the correct value (03-15 in this case). Click the left black triangle / arrow button so that the new ES contract is added to the list on the left. Then click OK. Optionally, you can click the old ES 12-14 contract and click the right arrow/triangle button to remove it from the list.
From this point forward, you can open a new chart for the new contract period or switch over your current chart by using the drop-down list in the upper left corner of the chart.
If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a NinjaTrader license, now is probably the best time to do so. Very seldom do we see NinjaTrader providing discounts for licenses. In case you did not receive their recent promotional email, here’s their offer:
Single Broker Lifetime License: Only $895 ($100 savings)
Multi Broker Lifetime License: Only $1195 ($300 savings)
Upgrade to a Multi-Broker Lifetime License: Only $300 ($200 savings)
*These discounts end Friday, December 19.
Why do you need to purchase a NinjaTrader license? You’re right – NinjaTrader is free to use for paper trading. However, as soon as you want to trade with real money, you have to purchase/lease a live license from NinjaTrader to “unlock” NinjaTrader’s ability to trade with real money. Note that to trade with real money, you will still need a funded account with a broker and have that connection set up in NinjaTrader. Purchasing a NinjaTrader license gets you halfway to truly engaging with the markets.
If you have any questions regarding these discounts or how credits from your existing lease may be applied to a new purchase, please send an email to [email protected]
